About me:

Waking up is a very good start to the day and my plan is to fully enjoy each and every one.

  • Replied in clue
    Even in a city with “hundreds of bridges” – perhaps only one has that extreme (almost Olympics) width? ;-)
  • Spot on Hans. My intended bedtime clue - “There is a strong association with a tranquil wee island, off a larger island, where an Irishman started something of note that lasted for centuries.” – ...
  • OK, to keep it moving… What and where? Wales, England and Scotland could all be said to have influenced the design – in one way or another.
  • Hi Shane, it's probably better if you try a different one. That GL is a real pain in the proverbial and likely puts people off guessing now when it does crop up. BTW, nice composition!
  • Replied in FREE TURN
    Yeah, I had a quick look from over there and thought the town jetty might have been a possibility, but couldn't match up the skyline. I've already put a couple up so let's give someone else a go. A ...
  • Hi Brian, it still seems to be a bit quiet around here. I think the walking track could be the Bibbulmun Track stretching from Kalamunda to Albany in Western Australia. If the four wind turbines ...
  • Replied in FREE TURN
    We are well past the 48 hour time limit so a FREE TURN is now on offer. Be the first to post a new challenge photo.
  • Spot on Mark, Ongaonga it is – named after the most common Maori name for the stinging tree nettle Urtica ferox. No particular interest in gas pumps, just happened to be identifiable objects in ...
  • Replied in Clues
    This wee town has a similar tiny population to Twin Lakes but is on an island more than 11,000km to the southwest. Watch out for the local version of Urtica - not mobile or carnivorous like the ...
  • Where? We see another pair of pumps in another 1800s vintage town of similar size to the previous Twin Lakes challenge.
  • The only one of these in this country? (GL not required here)  :-)
  • Kjeld, as this location is found immediately by GL I suggest you try a different photo. This is what we normally do.
  • Welcome to GTP Mark! That’s the place, good hunting! The nearby ‘fourteener’ is of course Mount Elbert and the mountain pass is the Independence Pass. It’s said that the Twin Lakes are home to some ...
  • Replied in More clues
    The nearby ‘fourteener’ (highest in the state) is often snow-capped even in the summer and the mountain pass to the west is closed for half of the year.
  • Replied in Clues
    If landing a local trophy lake trout is your thing, fishing gear is available here - but it’s not open for business all year round - and there is an inn (also dating back to 1879) on the opposite ...

    A new thread has now been started: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/66352596
  • What and where? Not sure how easy this might be.
  • Created discussion thread Guess the place #233
    This long-running thread started way back in 2009. Number 1: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/33469604 This is number 233 in the series. GUESS THE PLACE RULES These are the rules for this ...
  • Dave, we are now on 146 posts and very close to the thread limit so I’ll place a guess. Were you up in the Hallgrimskirkja Church tower in Reykjavik, Iceland? A search for “domed roof building and ...
  • That capital city can be found without using any reverse search facility Dave - by focusing on a particular building. Haven't looked further for where you're standing.
